Rating: 2 stars (maybe a 1.5 even)
I actually thought about not writing a review for this, just because this book is popular, hyped up, and well-loved. It also has been recommended to me countless of times, and the mysteriousness and countless positive reviews intrigued me to no end, so I got it and I read it.
I was excited, but the first few chapters didn't hook me right away. I wasn't sure where it was going, what it was going to be about, and I couldn't really relate to the main character. I also found many insta-love moments here - wherein the protagonist falls in love with the good looking boy the moment she sees him and that's that.
By the time I got to the middle of the book, I was still left underwhelmed, like something was missing. There was no appeal, no excitement, no anything. I thought the ending was nicely done, but it wasn't enough to make me love the book, just because the rest of the story wasn't solid enough.
Overall, I felt it was a very underdeveloped story with characters I couldn't picture as 'real people' that I can relate to and empathize with. I wouldn't recommend this if you usually don't read contemporary young adult. As always, this is just my opinion. Let me know what you thought of it.
